Prayer is Special During Advent

St. Dominic, about 800 years ago, preached about nine great ways to take our prayers to God.

  1. Humility (reference 2 Chronicles 7:14)
  2. Worship (ref: Psalm 29:2)
  3. Penance (ref: Acts 2:38)
  4. Contemplate the love of God through the cross (ref: Phillipians 2:10)
  5. Be still and listen to God (ref: 1 Chronicles 16:8)
  6. Intercession (ref: John 14:13-14) Jesus Christ stated, “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.”
  7. Supplication for wisdom, transfixed (ref: Psalm 103:1) and
  8. Study the Word of God (ref: Acts 3:16)
